Stampin Stray Ducklings – Embossing Folders!

Welcome to our September Blog Waddle! We are featuring projects using embossing folders!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Lighthouse Point Bundle (#158907) to feature because I love lighthouses. They are America’s castles. The card base is Pacific Point with a layer of Balmy Blue which was embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (#156505). Then I embossed three 1″ strips of Basic White in the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder (#154317) and the Fern 3D Embossing Folder (#158804). After cutting the lighthouse with the die from the Lighthouse Dies (#158906) and then embossed it with the Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder (#149643). I chose to use the de-bossed side for the front for texture and interest.

The top of the lighthouse was die cut in Smoky Slate and the railing in Basic Black. The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point from the Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set (#158901) and then die cut. Both the lighthouse and the sentment and lifted with Stampin’ Dimensionals (#104430).

There are so many wonderful Embossing Folders to give texture to your cards!

Stampin Stray Ducklings – Die Cuts!

Welcome to our August Blog Waddle! We are featuring projects with die cuts!! You may have arrived here from Lori Helvick’s blog.  Following me is Nancy Legate’s blog.

I picked the Summer Shadow Dies (#156618) to feature because of the lovely flower shapes. I love the new In-Colors Starry Sky and Orchid Oasis so I used those for my flower colors. I paired Shaded Spruce and Mint Macaron for the leaves! A polka-dot In-Color piece of Orchid Oasis DSP backs the flowers on a Basic White panel cut with the largest die from the Scalloped Contours Dies (#155560). The card base is Starry Sky. The sentiment from Go To Greetings (#158763) is stamped in Starry Sky.
